Open Access: there is something wrong!

leave a comment »

If 89% of researchers positively recognise the benefits of OA journals but only 8% of them publish in OA journals, there is something wrong.

OA is an alternative model but it has also created new barriers: the so called “author pays” logic (stressed by 39% of the surveyed researchers). It’s worth working on that in the next few years.
